    I agree with Bruce that the transponders on a cable loop were a pain in the butt. I think that putting the cable through a plastic tube would cure most of the snagging problem.
    Scoring was basic. Lee’s issue with the tire going down could have been identified earlier if the scoring information was disseminated better. A local WI-FI website would have been outstanding. An awning over the scoring screen would be an upgrade.
    I want to thank Gordon and Bruce for putting up with my excessive mass and thank you Bill for making us aware of these fantastic opportunities.
    I hope to see you all at a future event.

    I enjoyed the race more than I expected.
    I felt that the karts were consistent in performance and were in outstanding condition. I could imagine a “new car” smell. I enjoyed the staff. They were friendly and helpful and weren’t concerned about trivial nonsense.
    Lee has more experience than I do in any of this, but I didn’t view the single course worker as an issue. What I saw was a “team” that would do whatever was necessary to facilitate the event running smoothly.

    I really like that Bill is setting up these long endurance races. I'll go to as many as I can. I forgot to tell Les when he asked us yesterday what we would change. I think the timer we wore around our neck needs to change to some other way. Maybe put it on the kart like others do. I'll mention it next time I go there. Thanks for racing. Jim, Gordon thanks for letting me be on your team.

    Enjoyed the race, but would have liked a larger field. Not nearly so well organized as Endurance Karting. Might have been hard to control more karts with only one course worker. Would have liked a compensatory lap for the flat tire that was not our fault and that caused us to get out of pit sequence, shortened two stints for our fastest driver, and ultimately caused us to run out of gas.

    Wheel to Wheel Karting teams took 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 5th & 6th places. Great to have a good turnout.

    This will be my first time racing at this track. I hope it is fun. Good luck to all.

    I'm interested if two drivers would care to join me.

      Hey Lee I'd love to join you but I'll be managing event control for Andretti @ the Milwaukee Mile.

  • Bruce W.

    I am interested.

    Would like to do this, but have no one to team up with. I think three drivers would be about right.
